Globalization Brings Benefits to All Countries

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang delivered an address resoundingly touting the benefits of globalization during the first day of the World Economic Forum’s “Summer Davos” event in Dalian, China.

During the speech, Li heralded globalization, saying that “it is bringing benefits to all countries,” although he acknowledged that countries may also face challenges along the way.

While positioning China as a global leader, the premier also reiterated his country’s commitment to addressing climate change — a reaffirmation which comes in the wake of the U.S. announcing its departure from the global Paris Agreement on the issue.
